06 December 2008 | San Fernando, Buenos Aires, Argentina
I motored Issuma upriver to San Fernando (a suburb of Buenos Aires) last week. Yacht Club Argentino was kind enough to let me use their location in San Fernando, which has haulout and repair facilities.
San Fernando and the surrounding area has thousands of pleasure boats, and seems to have several fibreglass boatbuilding companies, and several chandleries (yacht equipment stores). The picture above is one of the local chandleries. I don't think the horse eating the dandelions has anything to do with the chandlery, but it seemed to make for a nice picture.
